  • Green Card After H1B Visa

    Hello All,
    I got my GC two months ago and the date my application was aproved is the date when I am starting my permanent residence in this country. Someone might say this is obvious, well it is, but...
    My question is that after being on H1B visa for 6 years, paying all taxes - dont we deserve some break in a waiting time to be able to apply for US citizenship?
    Why we need to wait another 5 years to apply for citizenship???
    IT IS NOT FAIR, for all of us....what can we do???

    Because the INA says so, and does not permit DHS to make an exception, except if you have been married to a US citizen.

    Ask Congress to change the law, but don't hold your breath.
